Chiropractic Care is the Easy Choice for Pain
By Donna Kostiew
There is an office supply store that sells a red plastic button with the word “easy” written across the top of it. I guess it is supposed to bring motivation and simplification to the workplace. When it is pressed, it makes a noise which serves as a reminder for those around it to find alternative solutions to whatever issue they are having a problem with at that moment.
I wish people who are suffering from chronic pain had this button. Imagine how easy it would be for them to find relief if they had an “easy” button on the nightstand right next to their bed. Actually, what I really wish for is if they had this magical button that it would somehow miraculously work instead of just sitting there, making funny noises when it is pushed.
Pain is Never Easy
Finding relief for chronic back or neck pain is hard; it’s not something that comes along easily, although many people reach for that easy, at-home fix that is often found in their cabinets. For many, the easy solution may be to reach for a bottle of painkillers. However, that isn’t always the best answer. If you take a look at the side effects, you can see that there are significant health risks that come with their use, many of which can be extremely dangerous.
- Blood clots
- Digestive problems
- Increased pain
- Weakened immune systems
- Liver toxicity
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Drug abuse or addiction
Press the Easy Button for Alternative Solutions
Exploring alternative options for the treatment of pain doesn’t have to be difficult, and exploring options that are safe and natural is a worthwhile pursuit. Chiropractic care is a better substitute for pain medications because it actually addresses the root cause of your problem and offers so many other health benefits at the same time.
- Reduction/elimination of pain
- Greater flexibility
- More energy
- Improved immune system
- Better sleep
